Kel-tech Sub 2000 Carbine

Apparently since Ruger did so well with knocking off the Keltec 380 they should get the machines a rolling on copies of a Glock compatible Keltec Sub2000... Agh but the egos of manufacturing will never let that happen.

Despite the typical ego'esk mentality of it will only work with my guns and magazines, kudos to Keltec for making the Sub 2000 available in a couple different versions that will fit all the major manufacturers .40 or 9mm pistol magazines.

There are two things that truly make the Keltec Sub2000 unique and so popular you can't find any. First is that pistol magazine compatibiliy so that your pistol mags you are already carrying will work when used in the carbine. Need a couple extra rounds downrange but your carbine mag has run dry? No problem pull the mag from you pistol pop it in and start shredding targets out to 150 yards all without having to drop to cover to reload a carbine specific mag.

Second is that super cool folding capability. It all just works.

So where the he'll is my 12 gauge AR10

If I can do this with my stock Magpul LR308 mags someone MUCH smarter than me should have an upper for my DPMs 308 available by now.

Glock 19 love it

So as the story goes I bought 2 Glock 19 Gen 2 pistols for him and one for her.

The reason I got a great deal was that they had the early highly suggested upgrade parts (read as a soft recall). Both went to Glock right after purchase for a check over and update.

Glock said they would check and replace any parts that see wore or outdated. The result was getting back the two pistols with all new internals... The only thing that was original after the update was the barrel slide and receiver. We also were provided with new update magazines, cases, and glock tool cleaning kits. I cannot recommend Glock enough after this experience.

The first trip to the range the g19 was pretty tight and groups were in the 7" range at 21 feet.

As you can see below I now have it dialed in nicely after dry firing the gun for a couple weeks while watching tv.
